Animal diseases are a significant source of lost revenue in livestock production systems. Reduction and control of diseases has traditionally been done under three management programs: eradication by test and slaughter, vaccination, and use of antibiotics. However, inadequate efficacy of vaccines...

Many secondary metabolites in plants are involved in a range of plant physiological processes including abiotic stress tolerance. Major polyamine (PA) compounds including putrescine (Put), spermidine (Spd) and spermine (Spm) have structural, functional and regulatory activities that allow them to...
